Movement in living organisms is achieved by many different mechanisms of which muscle contraction is one of the most studied and best understood. Nevertheless, the precise details of muscle action at the molecular level are still being evaluated. This book provides a concise account of our understanding to date.
Reviews of the first edition: 'Its eight short chapters are clearly written and each addresses a key aspect of muscle physiology or biochemistry. Particularly useful are the author's efforts to correlate information derived from different experimental approaches - mechanical, biochemical and ultrastructural - wherever possible and to describe experimental techniques that have played key roles in our current knowledge.' Journal of Bioenergetics and Biomembranes 'It will be a relief to have a well-written and authoritative account to refer students to, if only to prove that I am not making it all up.' FEBS 'C R Bagshaw integrates information previously scattered in general texts and reviews, and presents difficult concepts in an understandable manner.' New Scientist
